I've had another breakthrough.
It came in a moment of intense joy and happiness. I realized, in that moment of joy and happiness that nothing could bring me down at that moment. And this led me to the realisation that in my moments of sadness, nothing can really impact the source of my sadness.
And I realized I could hold onto that sadness, and I could hold on to that joy and I can bury it deep inside me and strengthen it and make it glow.
And then I realized that if I can do this - then so can others.
And I can do it with happiness and sadness, anxiety and relaxation, generosity and selfishness.
And so if people around you are always miserable - it really is there problem and not yours.
It really is them and not you.
Some people are just not cut out to be loving and happy - it just doesn't work for them.
Let go of the responsibility for the way others are feeling: you have no power over them. And they have no power over you.
